The other day I was in a still-life mood and did several haiga from a series of photographs I’d taken .. one I used for my Waka Library as an illustration haiga for “nothing” … today I’ll show you another with its variation:
lights and shadows play
in an empty room
shadows of the morning
an empty room
These were inspired by this fantastic haiku by Sodo, offered to us by Carpe Diem Haiku Kai:
yado no haru nanimo koso nanimo are
in my hut this spring,
there is nothing, –
there is everything!

Which do you prefer? I couldn’t choose.
